    Hi, been noticing that Chrome is a little slower than usual. When opening up Chrome, there is a white screen and it takes a minute to finally open all the way.

    Is there anything I can do to speed up Chrome?

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    You can remove un-needed Extensions.

    If using Windows 7, you can defrag your hard drive.

    Sorry to contradict you Electricity. It has been the collective memory of this forum that Registry Cleaners trash Windows 10 machines, if the OP is using Win 10.

    As the others here have mentioned, the less extensions you have for chrome the better as these use a separate process and will use more system ram and resources.

    However, you can reduce the impact by setting Chrome to use Process Per Site and raise Chrome's Cache by adding this line at the end of the Target option of the shortcut settings: --process-per-site --disk-cache-size=2147483648.

    If you have Chrome pinned to the task bar, right click the Chrome icon > Right Click Google Chrome > Select Properties and add the line above. The whole line should read: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --process-per-site --disk-cache-size=2147483648. Then click Apply and then click OK. If the icon is on the desktop, right click and select properties. If it's a tile, do the same as if it was pinned to the task bar.


    This actually makes chrome faster, but in theory, don't have so many extensions.

    If this fails, you really need to create a new chrome profile.

    Hi! Try to turn off or stop unwanted processes or check your computer for malware or update chrome.
